For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed reading and my love of books is something I hope my children will inherit. The boys have quite an impressive little library already and I make a point of reading to them at least once a day. A great way to get young children interested in reading is with a book about their favourite characters, and even better if the child features in the book as well! Little N adores Thomas & Friends so this personalised Christmas book with him at the centre of the story is just the ticket.
Creating a personalised Thomas & Friends Christmas book* is really quick and easy. It takes a few minutes to enter the names and select the hair, skin and clothing options to make the image look just like your child. The 25-page long book is then filled using these details to create their very own personal adventure with Thomas & Friends. The book takes about 10 days to produce and is sent by First Class mail.
When our book arrived I couldn’t wait to show it to the boys. Little N was excited to see that it was a Thomas & Friends book and asked if we could read it straight away. As we began to read the book Little N looked bemused as I said his name. I pointed to the boy in the picture and asked him who it was. His response was “that’s a little boy”, but when I said, “it’s you!” he burst out laughing! “It’s me, Mummy!”
Thomas & Friends You and the Christmas Rescue is a such a lovely book, it’s so magical for young readers to be at the centre of the story. Little N really believes that he is in this adventure, nodding along as I read it, as if he actually did help Thomas & Friends to save Christmas! N loves showing it to his brother, pointing out where he is in the book and explaining what he is up to in the story. It is a really engaging book and it’s a joy to see the boys so delighted by the tale.
Thomas & Friends You and the Christmas Rescue is published by Egmont, who encourage a love of reading by selling over a million books and over a million magazines for children every single month in the UK.
